Advertiser's comments

Fantastic single owner, blue water equipped example of the highly desirable and hugely practical Stephen Jones designed Rustler 44 Deck Saloon. Few yachts are built so well and her quality shows from every aspect and in every detail.   FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:   Listed in association with our Scottish partners MC Yachts and with just one caring owner since new, and a hugely successful 2yr 37,000Nm circumnavigation under her belt, the time has come for PEAT SMOKE’s owner to pass her to her next custodian as he searches for his next project. PEAT SMOKE has been very well maintained throughout her ownership and was constructed with a fantastic ‘blue water’ specification.   Having returned to the UK from her world adventures in late 2013 PEATSMOKE returned to the Rustler yard in Falmouth for a re-fit over the 2013/14 winter. These works included:-

  • New Mainsail and Staysail fitted
  • All canvas work laundered, repaired and re-proofed
  • New Selden rod kicker fitted with new gooseneck bushes
  • New lazy jack system fitted
  • New running rigging fitted including main, staysail & genoa halyards. Mainsheet, genoa and staysail sheets, traveller control lines etc.
  • Engine fully cleaned and serviced, injectors removed and serviced, flexible oil pipes replaced, turbo heat shield replaced, Speed seal kit fitted on raw water pump.
  • General joinery repairs internally and externally
  • Re-varnishing in high wear areas below decks
  • Renovation of portlights and ports
  • Servicing of DuoGen unit
  • Updating Firmware of Garmin instrument system
  OWNER’S COMMENTS:   We went to Southampton Boat show in 2009 to look for a boat suitable for a world circumnavigation.   Our primary requirement was a boat which would keep us safe in waters we knew little about when we were a long way from home.  Rustler was by far the most impressive of the boats we had short-listed.  The Rustler 42 nearly worked but It didn’t have the walk in aft cabin my wife wanted, the Rustler 44 did and is easily sailed by two. Being custom built, it allowed us to specify exactly how we wanted the boat to work and include the equipment we needed for serious sailing.   Peat Smoke was bought with safety in mind first, the very solid lay-up and strength is easily evident, the sail system is fool proof and she has been tested in some big seas.  The cutter rig is very effective and particularly if wind is forward of the beam she makes some impressive speeds. On a trip to Iceland during the summer of 2017 we averaged over 7 knots over three days in heavy weather.  When leaving for the circumnavigation in Biscay we had sustained winds of over 50 knots which whilst not too comfortable didn’t prove any problem for the boat while making ground South.   Peat Smoke's shakedown cruise was across Biscay to Spain in 2010 In 2011 we departed Islay and enjoyed a full circumnavigation, returning home in 2013. Since her return, we have been to Cornwall a couple of times and  have enjoyed exploring the Scottish Islands, St Kilda in 2014 and in 2017 a trip North to the Faroes and Iceland.   We lived aboard Peat Smoke for two years very happily, in fact I wished we had the wood paneling at home, the galley is particularly good and storage space is excellent for a long trip.  With the water-maker you are self-sufficient, the two lazarettes are enormous and great for all the extra kit needed on a long voyage.  The Fleet Broad band allowed us to stay in touch and download weather when we needed it.   This boat is built for passage making and that is what see does best, keeping the crew safe and comfortable, when we bought her we could have had two
